drones to a green fleet, i expect similar policies to continue for my former colleague chuck hagel to be confirmed, hopefully as early as next week. for all these reasons i have long been a supporter of renewable fuels, and i encourage the further development of an industry that is important, both to our national security as well as to our farm economy. whether we're talking food or water or energy security, let me put it this way. in the future, more crops in the field can mean fewer soldiers in the field. at the same time, as important as our defense capabilities are, we also need to rebalance for the other free d's. the u.s. today spends more on defense than on diplomacy, democracy and developments all put together. meanwhile, in the past year, china has more than doubled its investment in developing new agricultural technologies. those are the kinds of farsighted policies that are enabling china to emerge as a world power, in which we, frankly, need to get back to. as we shift our focus and our resources towards smarter, more constructive forms of international interaction, it'

" with some great stuff lately. republicans ugly and shameful. chuck hagel filibuster. republicans have doubled down with their shameful filibuster of secretary of defense chuck hagel. add to this fresh insult of rand paul to put a hold on john brennan. looks like republicans are backing a cynical strategy that could compromise national security while proliferating partisanship. let's put it this perspective. republicans decided to filibuster a republican secretary of defense nominee. someone mitch mcconnell once called one of the most respected foreign policy. someone john mccain said would be an excellent secretary of state in his administration. it's fictional one. avalon writes this bitter confirmation fight is sadly ironic because picking a member of the opposite party usually an olive branch. remember how that would be seen as outreach? no longer. the abuse of a filibuster to delay or block the confirmation of the secretary of defense raises questions about filibuster reform because if a senator had to hold the floor and risk his bladder like jimmy stewart in "mr. smith goes to wa
